ODL’s new MD

Bryan Bultema, managing director of ODL Europe

Bryan Bultema is to be managing director of the building products supplier, ODL Europe, from 1 April. Bryan has been with ODL since 1988, and has been instrumental in supporting the global business’ vision and development, ODL’s representative has stated.

After serving as vice president of Zabitat, an ODL company specialising in online home improvement products, Bryan will continue to lead ODL Europe and its day-to-day executive management team. Bryan succeeds Nathan Barr, who is to step down from the role after four years, due to family commitments and to pursue new opportunities outside of the fenestration market.

Bryan said: “I am thrilled to join ODL Europe. Together with the strong talent Nathan has assembled, we will continue executing our plan of creating and providing solutions that contribute to the success of our valued customers while honouring our values-based culture.”

Townes Parsley, ODL’s executive vice president, added: “We would like to thank Nathan for his huge contribution towards the business, and wish him all the best for the future. Over the past few years, ODL Europe has experienced rapid growth, and we have embarked on a future-proof investment strategy to scale up the business to continue to support our customers. ODL Europe has a bright and exciting future, and we are looking forward to working with Bryan and continuing on the journey.”
